EXPERT TO AID IN
County Agent Beck Secures Earl
Price of 0. A. C- to Demon
- strate Advantage of Drainage;
Services Free to Farmers. - ;
County Agent Beck is very fortunate
In being able to secure the services
of Earl Price, drainage specialist of
the O. A. C." extension service, for
work in this county during the com
ing spring. Mr. Price, cooperating
with Mr, Beck, will lay out drainage
' systems insofar as his time permits
for those people who are actually
ready to go ahead with the construc
tion of their drain, using the places
on which he works as a drainage dem
onstration farm. -
. Any person in the' county who is
intending to drain a piece ot his farm
either by tile or open ditch, and is not
sure just how he should do It would
do well to get in touch with Mr. Beck
and ask him to reserve time on Mr.
Price's schedule. These services are
absolutely free and it is hoped that
some good work can be done,
Mr. Price will also advise anyone
on the construction of Septic tanks
both as to location, construction and
layout of general equipment. Many
people let the supposed cost of septic
tank stand in their way of installation.
A septic tank, however, can be con
structed very cheaply. Many have
been constructed for around $25 for
an average family. If yon are inter
ested, drop a line to the county agent.

APPEAL FOR AI
Claims Famous Tiger's Mission
cept That of Vengeance, Punishment and Anticipated War;
Not a Single Ray of Promise in Regards to Peace or Hap
piness of World; Disclaims Statement That Mon Must Be
Governed by Force.
The following excerpts were taken
from a speech by Senator William E.
Borah of Idaho, delivered In the sen
ate chamber at Washington, D. C, in
answer to M. Clemenceau, famous
war premier of France, who visited
this country recently and delivered
many speeches ln eastern states, urg
ing thlB country to aid in threshing
out the critical situations that are
facing the countries of the old world:
It is a pretty serious charge, Mr.
President, for a guest although we
are very glad to have him here to
say to the country which he is visit
ing that the fearful misery and un
speakable conditions which now ob
tain in Europe are the direct result
of the dishonorable policy of our coun
try, because our action could not be
Honorable upon the basis upon which
it is presented to ns. We did not
leave at a time when we were not
permitted to leave, with all due re
spect to the view of the Senator from
Nebraska (Mr. Hitchcock), and I am
perfectly satisfied that the present
conditions ln Europe do not arise by
reason or our act. I think the state
ment made by M. Clemenceau Is as
unfounded as It is ungrateful.
The United States went to Europe
to participate in a war for which In
the first Instance the United States
was In no sense responsible, a war
wnlcn grew ont of the system and
policies which had prevailed In Europe
particularly for the last 25 years.
dlreet result of the policies which ob
tained there. The war came aa a re
sult of those policies, and it progress
ed to sucn a point that the American
people took part In It It Is pretty
well conceded that hy reason of their
participation they assured victory to
,the Allies. We sacrificed hundreds
and thousands of American soldiers.

Here Carried No Message Ex-
We contribited a vast amount of
money We were certainly a dominat
ing factor in the determination of the
war upon the part of the Allies. We
came home without asking repara
tions, damages, territory, compensa
tion, or anything else of that nature
or kind. Having won the victory or
made victory possible, having expend
ed vast sums of money nnd sacrificed
thonsands of lives, and having left all
damages and vast territories to our
Allies, we are now told we abandoned
our Allies in dishonorable fashion. '
The fourth proposition which seems
to be clear from Mr. Clemenceau's
speech Is that we should now guaran
tee the boundaries of France; that we
should undoubtedly go there with our
Army, with our men, with our military
force; ln othef words, that we should
give a guaranty, which guaranty
would necessarily have to be backed
up by military force under the pres
ent policies of France.
Thelfth proposition which M. Clem
enceau submitted to us was that the
Monroe doctrine Is obsolete; that it
was a very good doctrine for the coun
try when it was young, but to use
his expression tha doctrine of a
child or the policy of a child is not the
correct doctrine or policy for a mature
We are advised, therefore, that this
policy, which Is purely an American
policy, distinctly an Individual policy,
so far as the Nation is concerned, and
on which has been very highly prised

and which, ln my Judgment, Is still a
cherished policy, Is now obsolete an
